Cape Town, South Africa
Global Challenges, Local Solutions and Connected Pathways are the theme of the third International Conference on Global Food Security. The conference is organized in association with the DST-NRF Centre of Excellence in Food Security and the Universities of Pretoria and the Western Cape. The five core conference themes reflect an integrated approach to identifying solutions to the complex global challenge of food security: Food creation, food safety and bio security, food loss and waste, food in a changing society, and food utilization.
Cutting across are the three concerns societal change, innovation and technology, and gender as well as the link to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The conference aims at enabling knowledge sharing and ideas cross-fertilisation and fresh ideas, building new networks for collaboration and to challenge thinkers to make new connections.
IIASA researcher Alison Heslin will give a presentation entitled "Food and Violence: Complicating the Relationship between Social Conflict and Natural Resources". Her presentation will be part of a session on food security, conflicts and peace-building and will take place on Sunday, 3 December 2017 between 12:30-2:30PM.
